Build Trust With Their Communities
Naomi Hunter Communications helps school districts, government agencies, and non-profit organizations accomplish their goals by building, strengthening and maintaining relationships of trust with the public.
How We Can Help
To gain and maintain support for your organization’s mission, you must listen and respond to the public with effective communication. Without your community’s trust, it will be impossible to achieve your goals. And communication that is attuned to your community is essential to building that trust. Most organizations strive to communicate clearly and transparently, but they don’t always have the expertise or capacity to do so.
We can help you develop a communications strategy, a step-by-step plan to achieve your communication goals, and provide you with the resources to implement it, whether you are seeking to increase overall support for your organization, address a specific problem, or launch a new project, initiative or product.
No one likes being talked at, and everyone wants to be heard. Organizations lose trust when they don’t listen to their audiences. Failure to listen results in tone-deaf communication, or no communication at all. We can help you devise a strategy and plan for gathering the feedback you need to craft sensitive communication that helps you meet your goals.
Sharing information is the most basic aspect of communication. You must decide how to best reach your audiences. We can help assess and improve your communications infrastructure and increase your transparency with the public so that you may share clear, plainly written information that increases understanding of your products and services.
Persuasion is at the heart of effective communication. And you must have the trust of your audience to be believed. Whether you are educating the public about an important issue, building support for a decision, or raising funds for a cause, we can help you craft effective messages that will help you achieve your goals.
All organizations occasionally must react to events and developments that are out of their control. What you say in those critical moments after negative news or perceptions about your organization become public can affect your reputation—positive or negative—for long afterward. We can help you communicate in a crisis.
We provide a wide range of services designed to help you build trust with your community.
